BAYOU LA NANA. Bayou La Nana (Lanana) rises three miles north of the Nacogdoches city limits in north central Nacogdoches County (at 31°42' N, 94°36' W) and flows southwest, through the center of Nacogdoches, for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Angelina River, one mile southeast of Procella (at 31°28' N, 94°43' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses close to the stream.
